There are many teams who would say they have been robbed of a game at Croke Park but few who would have filed a Garda report about it. The Crime Scene Investigation Unit was at the stadium yesterday, though in altogether more benign circumstances.
Dublin North Central Gardaí in association with Croke Park have launched the first annual Dublin North Central Youth Awards.
These awards have been created to celebrate outstanding young people between 13 and 21 years of age and will recognise the good work being done by young people throughout the communities of Dublin North Central.
Awards will be considered for nominated young people who by their presence make their communities a better place to live.
That could be through sport, through community engagement, through friendship or a host of different ways. Think of it in terms of what it is that makes your child or classmate someone who makes a difference around them.
There will also be an award for groups of two or more young people whose combined efforts have contributed positively to their communities.
All nominees and group members should be between 13 and 21 years of age. The Dublin North Central Garda Division covers Mountjoy, Fitzgibbon Street, Bridewell and Store Street Garda Stations.
The closing date for receipt of applications is Tuesday, October 31st 2017 at 5pm. You can find out more and download an application form at the Croke Park website here.
